A couple things made me catch my breath this week. It shouldn't come as a surprise that the first was a door and the second was a chair. I am what I am.The first was this fantastic pressed leather door in the home of Lisa Borgnes Giramonti, found via i suwannee. I especially love the plate. The whole thing is so very Peacock Room.The second is this gorgeous chair, from the home of Jacques Grange, featured today on The Selby. I'm desperate to know who made it. I'd guess Belgian art nouveau, Horta or Van de Velde, but I'd love to know for sure.

You might recall this past summer I participated in a Swap facilitated by i suwannee. Well, my swap buddy Anne and I had such fun we decided to another one, all by ourselves. This time the theme is winter. The wheels are turning already!

Thank you so much for the kind mention! And the Peacock Room is to die reminds me of Leighton House Museum in London.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with the internets! I've never seen the Leighton House Museum--I'll add it to the list! I go to school next door to the Freer, where the Peacock Room lives. It's a lovely place to spend an afternoon.
